Jake Locker injury: Titans QB scheduled for foot surgery on Wednesday

Locker will undergo surgery to repair a season-ending Lisfranc injury in his foot and expects to be ready to go by training camp next season.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker will undergo foot surgery on Wednesday and expects to be back in time for the beginning of training camp next season, according to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky.

Locker suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury in his foot during a Week 10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The oft-injured third-year quarterback said he would be ready to return in time for the team's 2014 training camp "no problem."

Locker was in the middle of his best season as a pro before going down, having completed over 60 percent of his passes and throwing eight touchdowns to four interceptions. The Titans selected him as the eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft and he was expected to become a franchise quarterback for a team in dire need of stability at the position.

Injuries have kept Locker from providing that stability so far in his career. An inability to stay healthy has cost him 25 games through his first three seasons.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who played well in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts last Thursday, will start at quarterback for the remainder of the season.
